Other Homemade Gear / tyvek for tents?
« on: December 24, 2008, 03:16:00 pm »
I'm putting my stuff together to head up north after christmas for a
few nights.

I have a nice canvas tarp that I was going to use... but can't find it.
My mom thinks that my brother may have used it to trailer a load in
the summer!

So now I need to look for possible alternatives.
Has anybody used tyvek as a tarp or as tent material?

I know that the noise of it crinkling in the wind would be annoying but it'd
be light, breathable, water proof, and fire retardant.

What have you guys done for stove jacks on your homemade tents?

I have a canvas tarp that I pitch into a pyramid/miner's tent & am thinking about crafting a small stove to bring on my next trip.


I'm planning on slipping out on a little trip between Christmas and New Years.
I'm not exactly sure where I'll go yet but I'd like to add some skiing to the trip.

Does anybody know where I could rent a some backcountry skis?
I called mec, but they only rent skating and track skis.

Thanks for any suggestions.
